  1. Very nice! Curious to know the Mr hobby paints you used. Bye
  2. Hi, Another figure printed at home on my Sonic mini4K. Model from stepanovsculpts, bought on cgtrader. Brush painted with acrylics. Still some techniques to improve, but my friend who got this as a birthday present was pretty happy, so am I. Bye!
  3. Hello Something different, and out of my comfort zone. A bust printed on Sonic mini 4K. Black primer overall, armor parts polished with fine abrasive sponge then sprayed with alclad chrome, then buffed. Clothes are sprayed with white from above to enlight edges. Then painted with water based acrylics (mostly Vallejo/prince august) This is the way! Romain
  4. Thank you so much guys! Really appreciated
  5. Thanks guys!! Carlos, 218 is sprayed right onto the plastic. It turned to be that is was a fragile coat as it can disolve easily with enamel thinner. Cheers !
  6. Thank you all! Ct, thanks for feedback. I like taking pics with both black and white background. For this one I would prefer black. And with white, the nose and vertical stab tip are merging with background. Bye
  7. Hello I built this nice little kit last year. I found it very detailed, and despite complex assembly, fitting was pretty good. I added Microdisign PE, and canopy explosive cords from Quinta. Painted with AKREAL 247+239 for light blue ,236 for blue and249+239+a drop of purple for the grey. Weathering with oil, flat varnish from VMS. Bye Romain
  8. Thank you guys Yes, you are totaly right!
  9. Thank you guys! Bill, im sorry but I cant recall the ratios. As you can see by the number of paints used, it was kind of rocket science to find the right tone
  10. thank you! as for the chipping, the whole model is primed with mr hobby 218, wich gives weak adhesion for paints applied on it. then the dark sea blue is painted, and after drying, chipped with toothpick and blade.
  11. Hello Here is a build done in early 2020. Hasegawa F4U-7 Aires Cockpit Aires engine Pavla control surfaces Obsureco wheels Brassin HVAR and bomb Adecco decal The model depicts a plane during 1956 Suez Canal crisis. Some sources say that this actual airframe had only yellow stripes wihtout black ones. Aires cockpit needs some added details to depict a -7 such as armrests, and armament control boxes on each sides of the gunsight. Paint is AKREAL COLORS RC258 Dark sea blue, tuned with MrHobby C375 and a drop of H5. Hope you like it! Critiques and comments welcomed! Romain
